  • I really like this place. It was interesting and informative. I only wish they would protect it more from the elements. There is less of it than when i first visited it 10 years ago. Sad. I do recommend seeing it before its gone one day.
  • Great place to visit. The volunteers are very friendly, and they have a real understanding of which they speak. It has a very nice little gift shop, including some luxury licorice. No charge for the exhibit, and it's nice to be able to walk around and look on our own time. We highly recommend this as a stop for your family.
